Earthquakes pose increasing risk to buildings, occupants


Earthquakes continue to be a threat to economic productivity and overall safety, according to new research that shows that over 143 million Americans will experience potentially dangerous seismic activity during their lifetimes. The number is a dramatic increase from 1994, when FEMA estimated that only around 75 million Americans were at risk from seismic activity. The Seismological Society of America report also shows that around 28 million people will experience shaking strong enough to cause significant damage to critical infrastructure such as hospitals and schools. more
